...and therefor making it easier to create subcircuit
with special icons. by the way, editing that directly
in logisim would also be nice...

My long-term plan is to include a small drawing program within Logisim that allows you to configure the appearance of a subcircuit. It sounds like this may be what you're actually requesting.
The idea of being able to create a JAR library out of an existing Logisim circuit is intriguing, though. But if Logisim contained a good drawing system for configuring subcircuits' appearance, is there any other compelling reason that this would be useful?
I did come up with one somewhat compelling reason: The subcircuit's
appearance could modify with the internal state. For example, if there's
a register hidden inside the subcircuit, the Java code for drawing it
could reflect the register's value.

jar files are also required for pins that should be both input and output, and a predisigned subsircuit would be easier to modify

The ability the draw the "symbol" for a subcircuit would be create. If I could make a subcircuit of a controlled buffer look like an nfet (control = gate, input = source, output = drain) and another subcircuit with an inverter on the control input look like a pfet, then I could use this to draw cmos circuit level diagrams too!!!!
